Notre Dame Gameday interactive program

Joe Zeff Design Studio created and developed an interactive gameday program for the University of Notre Dame to provide fans of the top-ranked college football team with a preview of the BCS National Championship game against No. 2 Alabama. Notre Dame Gameday is packed with game recaps, photo and video galleries, statistical analyses, interactive rosters, animated lineups, stadium diagrams — even a virtual tailgate party.

Notre Dame Gameday takes fans behind the scenes with the No. 1-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish, recounting the highlights of their climb to the top of the BCS rankings and previewing their January 7 matchup against No. 2 Alabama, the defending national champions. The free iPad app features game-by-game recaps of the team’s 12-0 season, photo and video galleries, statistical analyses, interactive rosters, animated lineups, stadium diagrams — even a virtual tailgate party.
